Do you remember the exhibition The poster and Poland with pictures from Solidarność 1981, and the exhibition AIDS - the Plague of our Time from the late 1980s? You might also have seen Masterpieces in Wood in 1991, with sculptures of the medieval wood-carvers from the north, or the large and internationally acclaimed Mirror's Edge 1999 and South African National Gallery's visit in 2001?
Since its inception, Bildmuseet has shown 410 exhibitions complemented by a rich program with lectures, artist presentations, film screenings, workshops, dance performances and concerts. We have gone through the archives and found the more than 250 posters made for the museum's exhibitions. They will all be included in the commemorative presentation Bildmuseet 30 Years!.
In conjunction to the exhibition, Bildmuseet invites you to a workshop where visitors of all ages can create their own posters. The workshop, supervised by an art teacher and with free entrance, will be open every weekend throughout the exhibition period. Those who wish can exhibit their own poster.
On Sunday November 20th, we end with a "finissage" - a grand closing party for Bildmuseet at Gammlia. A warm welcome to join in and celebrate a legendary period of Bildmuseet history.
Then we close the old premises at Gammlia to move to the new museum building on the Umeå Arts Campus! Estimated premiere in March 18th, 2012.
